Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook, is in Nairobi to meet entrepreneurs and app developers. Mr Zuckerberg, however, caused stir in Nairobi when he shunned five-star hotel treatment for traditional food outside Central Business District where he enjoyed local delicacy.
Accompanied by Cabinet Secretary for Information and Communication Technology Joe Mucheru, Mr Zuckerbeg was seen enoying a meal of fried talapia and ugali at a popular restaurant owned by the family of a footballer. Mama Oliech restaurant is owned by the mother of former international footballer Denis Oliech who played his club football in France before hanging his boots.
“I had lunch in Nairobi with Joseph Mucheru, the Kenyan Cabinet Secretary of Information and Communications. We talked about internet access and his ambitious plans for connecting everyone in Kenya.
We ate at MAMA Oliech Restaurant. — a local place everyone recommended. One of my favorite parts of traveling to a new country is trying the food. I enjoyed ugali and a whole fried tilapia for the first time and loved them both!” He posted on his facebook page.
